In 2009, Matt Offenbacher coined the phrase "Green Gothic" for an essay originally published in his zine La Especial Norte. In it he addresses concepts specifically intertwined with contemporary Northwest identity: landscape, industry, the Romanticism of Ruskin, decay, regrowth, monsters lurking in the shadows, and the sublime. The exhibit Green Gothic is a physical footnote to Offenbacher's essay and offers work by six artists who stitch together portraits of a place on both macro and micro levels. Artists attempt exhaustive strategies reminiscent of those employed by Situationists (like Lisa Radon's encyclopedic document based on the physical space of Hedreen Gallery or Serrah Russell's cabinet of physical and photographic documents). Charles Mudede's films depict a search for the mystic (God) in the chattering leaves of a quasi-fictional/mythical city park. Rodrigo Valenzuela's photographs blur visual fact with fiction in digital amalgams of Northwest landscapes. Gretchen Bennett's delicate drawings from the televised psychodrama The Killing speak of twilight, the unknown, and "searching for clues, for monsters only glimpsed." Together these artists amass something akin to a psychological, metaphysical, or objective vision of place, exhibiting obsessive love or curiosity for it.Artists: Gretchen Bennett, Charles Mudede, Lisa Radon, Serrah Russell, and Rodrigo ValenzuelaMatthew Offenbacher's original Green Gothic text can be found online: http://www.helloari.com/~matt/green_gothic.htmFacebook event page:http://www.facebook.com/events/420367871388612/?fref=tsAttached images: Seeing night for the first time. by Serrah Russell, Worker #2 by Rodrigo Valenzuela.
